Sharing his personal investigations into a wide range of ancient mysteries and paranormal enigmas in America and abroad, Frank Joseph takes us on a journey into the high strangeness of our world.
Beginning with the work of the master builders of antiquity, the author examines Old World connections with New World sacred centers, such as the similarities between Ohio’s Mound City and the pyramids and tombs of the Giza Plateau, as well as ancient American cities of the Sun, China’s Great Pyramid, and the possibility of a Templar treasure on Oak Island. He explores modern sacred sites, such as Iowa’s Grotto of Gems, Tennessee’s Greek Temple of the goddess Athena, and Florida’s Coral Castle. He investigates pre-Columbian sites and underwater pyramids in the Midwest, Wisconsin’s UFO hot-spot, lost Aztec Cities of Gold in Kansas, and giant-built constructions in Illinois. He details how the intriguing acoustics of Newgrange in Ireland are echoed in its spiral carvings. Exploring spiritual uses of altered states, he looks at the practices of Minoan snake handlers, Mayan shamans, and prophets through the ages.
